Int J Acarol 14(2):71–88 Effect of Releases of Amblyseius californicus on the Twospotted Spider Mite on Strawberry in Southern California , UC Riverside, Journal of Economic Entomology The second set of experiments was the choice test, which provided female mites of each predatory species with (50% of T. urticae larvae and 50% of phytoseiid larva) as a food source.

Int J Acarol 44:400–411 Always introduce Phytoseiulus persimilis predators if Spider Mite infestations are worsening or if there are high numbers of the pest. Ensure to introduce Phytoseiulus only when temperatures are above 15 °C , and when Spider Mites are present. Keep repeating applications until the predators are easy to observe on the plants.

In the experiments, predatory mites’ females were considered as (IG-predator), while larvae of heterospecifics species were considered as IG-prey (Montserrat et al. 2012). Tuda M, Ronn J, Buranapanichpan S, Wasano N, Arnqvist G (2006) Evolutionary diversification of the bean beetle genus Callosobruchus (Coleoptera: Bruchidae): traits associated with stored-product pest status. Mol Ecol 15:3541–3551Amblyseius californicus is also an effective predator of Spider Mites and can be introduced at lower temperatures than the Phytoseiulus. The californicus can also survive without Spider Mites for a prolonged period of time and can feed on pollen. This enables them to be introduced earlier and before Spider Mite appear. Their activity starts from temperatures over 10 ° C up to about 33°C. Nomikou M, Janssen A, Schraag R, Sabelis MW (2001) Phytoseiid predators as potential biological control agents for Bemisia tabaci. Exp Appl Acarol 25:271–291 They are available in bottles, or breeder sachets, that can be hung on plants, releasing predators over a period of weeks. They can be combined with Phytoseiulus for an effective bio control programme. Over 100 species of phytoseiid predatory mites occur in California. These include at least 25 Neoseiulus species, such as N. barkeri, N. brevispinus, N. californicus, N. cucumeris, and N. fallacis. Neoseiulus californicus appears to be the most abundant and widespread species of this genus in California. More Information Temperatures should be between 10-35 ℃ and ideally at a relative humidity above 60%, however lower levels can be endured by the c alifornicus. How Many Californicus Mites Do I Need?
